    I really don’t find it entertaining watching joong her and mi young love story. Miyoung is over acting. their love team is a not amusing and convincing. when its they act together with their liking with each other i skip their part.

    tigerb Says:

    up to ep. 46: hye young’s in laws provide hilarity while one family is torn in many directions in this time of crisis. but one thing sure, the solid foundation of love this family is built up brings them through.

    czarinah Says:

    I really hate miyoung she sided with the guy instead of her parents. i don’t even watch het part with joong her i don’t like her acting. i jus happened to see her part with her sisters and what??? she’s defending joong hee??? hello!!! i don’t like the way u act or ur not even natural

  10. 60
    czarinah Says:

    all miyoung care about is joong hee joong hee and nothing but joong hee. i hate her. ur such a flirt!!

  11. 61
    Yaeri san Says:

    It’s true at the first miyoung care about Ahn joong hee because she love him..and she feel betrayed by her father cause she love him too…so I think it was the usual thing happens…

  12. 62
    Reem Says:

    I don’t know why ppl. hate Miyoung acting and her reaction and what they hate her because she sided with Joonhee. I feel her reaction was most realistic first she loves him so much and second her parents have done him wrong they should have at least told him from the beginning. Last, they treated him so good and he loved them so much and it is the worst to get hurt from the ppl. who were good to u.

    Miyoung, Joonhee and the rest of the cast Fighting!!

    Thank U a lot for your hard work

    Sparkling Says:

    The best Kdrama 2017 so far! All casts doing their parts really well. Such a nice experience to watch drama with great heartwarming story, great acting of the leads. Making people laugh and cry in each episode. Two thumbs up for director, screen writer, all casts especially Lee Yu Ri and Lee Joon. I love Ahn Jong hee and Mi Young story, its all naturall and not in rush. I love all characters in the Byun Family and supporting roles. This is a High Quality KDrama. Hope it will win much awards!

    Nonuts Says:

    Miyoung the character grew up as a victim of bullying so she suffers from a lack of confidence in herself and she is naive about boy and girl relationships. I thought Jung So Min’s portrayal of the character is just right. I don’t see any over acting. She has obviously become a really fine actress.

    Syasya Says:

    I literally cried bcoz this drama will end real soon, but then I just saw that the episodes are 52 instead of 50 and YESSSS!!!! but seriously cant get enough of this drama. This is just too good to finish😭 Love every single thing about this drama, hope they win a lot of awards!❤❤❤

    Neea Says:

    @#68 Nonuts

    I agree with that. She grew up with no self-confidence, but her character grew.

    In the lasts 2 ep, she was confident enough, to make those first moves, when usually it was always Ahn Joong Hee initiating all skinships.

    dramalady Says:

    ep. 46, the drama writers are making Korean look very violent. the Koreans I know they aren’t like that.

  22. 72
    tigerb Says:

    everything went well in the last two episodes, as expected. while i can understand the retrial of the falsely accused crime, i didn’t quite get the resolution of the identity theft. he’s found guilty, to be imprisoned for six months, but on probation for two years. would the punishment have been worse if the ex-wife, or the son of the deceased sued? i was more interested in the legal aspects on that case, but,oh well, this is just a drama after all. it’s still a good watch.

  23. 73
    Shay Says:

    Lee Yoo Ri is AMAZING! She played this role flawlessly! Also, Lee Joon is so talented… singing, dancing, acting. I can’t wait to see him in his next role. He is so versatile. Loved this family drama. Really, everyone was great but the two mentioned above are phenomenal.

    The characters got on my nerves at time and the writer made a mountain out of a molehill, it was still a good drama. I enjoyed it.
